    My heart breaks for my husband John who lost a lifetime friend. They drifted apart over the years, but John always thought they had more time to eventually reconnect. Sadly, he was wrong. The one thing he must always remember, is that Joe always called him a friend. Whenever he saw me, he ALWAYS told me to tell John hi for him. John, you will always have so many happy memories of Joe, and he is ALWAYS a Dear friend, no matter where you are. Always remember that! Joe was a kind hearted man who was always ready to give a helping hand. He loved to joke around, and showed so much love for his friends and family. You will be greatly missed, but thanks to you, so many people have many happy memories. Rest In Peace. friend.
